She later opened her own studio, The Empty Nest, and made thousands of pots, which she sold in local galleries, at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and other craft shows for nearly 30 years.

She will be dearly missed by her four children: Angela Bobrowski; Gina Voelker Bobrowski; Paul Bobrowski and wife Donna; Dr. Joseph Bobrowski and wife Patricia; her grandchildren Kevin, Max, Griffin, August (Gus) Voelker, Benjamin and Laurel; and countless relatives and friends.
